Myrtle Stallion was born October 21, 1946 in Arlington, Tennessee to the late Ross and Vernell Granderson. She departed this life December 5, 2019 in the comfort of her home. Myrtle professed a hope in Christ at an early age at the Bush Grove Baptist Church, and later Hammond Grove Baptist Church in Arlington, Tennessee. She attended Fields Elementary School and Fayette County Training High School. She worked at Barrett’s Chapel School in the food service department for many years.
Upon moving to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Myrtle worked in retail at the Woolworth Corporation, the San Francisco Music Box Company and retired as a floor supervisor at Target. She became a member of the Ark of the New Covenant where she was faithful in ministry as a nurse, dedicated to the mother’s board and full of joy assisting with hospitality. Myrtle loved to cook and was a caterer, a baker, a pitmaster and a gardener just to name a few of her many gifts. She is known for her famous peanut butter cake, jerk chicken, smoked grilled turkey and ham, homemade ice cream, pound cake, preserves like squash relish or “cha-cha”, homemade head cheese as a holiday surprise.
Myrtle was her own businesswoman with a little side job known as “Hidden Treasures” if you needed anything she would thrift and rummage and find the best treasures. Myrtle had wisdom and knowledge and would share her insight and encouragement to those that had an ear to hear. She was a wealth of information like a walking WIKIPEDIA.
In her spare time she enjoyed helping others, cooking for others, sowing, repairing, and shipping care packages to loved ones full of goodies and love.
Myrtle made friends wherever she went and would easily create new memories and blessed friendships that have lasted a lifetime. Her life is like a fingerprint and if you are here today it is because that fingerprint was left with you too.
Myrtle leaves to cherish her memory three children, Robert Demonne Stallion, Ronald Dexter Stallion, and Tina Yvette Bailey, four grandchildren, Robert Stallion Jr., Rikki Danielle Stallion, Shamiko Stallion, and Isaac T. Bailey III, three great-grandchildren with one more on the way; four sisters, Roberta Nance, Florence Wilson, Janice Boyd, and Rosa (Herman) Edings; six brothers, Herbert (Archie) Granderson, James (Gladys) Granderson, Lawrence Granderson, Jeffrey Granderson, Ross (Karen) Granderson and Alfred Granderson; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends. She was preceded in death by two sisters, Virginia Harris (the late Marshall) and Josephine (Albert) Johnson and one brother, Robert Granderson.
